Overview

In 2007, Serpentine Gallery Co-Director Hans Ulrich Obrist and artist Olafur Eliasson invited more than 100 leading artists, architects, filmmakers, academics and scientists--including Peter Cook, Simon Baron-Cohen, Gloria Friedmann, Neil Turok, Kim Gordon, Spartacus Chetwynd, Simon Forti, Fia Bäckstrom and Joseph Grigely--to expand the notion of experimentation for their 24-Hour Experiment Marathon, held in the Rem Koolhaas-designed Serpentine Gallery Pavilion. In the tradition of Obrist's now-legendary ongoing 24-Hour Interview Marathon, the crowds were standing-room-only and the action never stopped. This publication details the more than 40 screenings, performances and experimental films making up this genre-bending blend of science and art.

Meet the Author

Olafur Eliasson was born in Copenhagen in 1967 to Icelandic parents. He studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Art, and now lives and works in Berlin. He says of his site-specific work that iinstalling it elsewhere is possible but then it is an other piece for me.i Nevertheless, his work is represented in public and private collections including those of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; and the Deste Foundation, Athens. Venues for his solo shows have included the Menil Collection; the Danish Pavilion at the 2003 Venice Biennale, The Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the Tate Gallery.
